If you’ve just decided to get into photography, then congratulations: you’ve made a great decision. photography can be seriously rewarding, and is an enjoyable hobby. However, you will need to make that initial investment in – you guessed it – a camera! It’s normally wise for beginners to go for a digital model. That’s why we got together with canvas prints UK experts SomerPrint to bring you these tips.
You won’t have to worry about film
Beginners in almost any craft need to be free to make mistakes. Using traditional cameras can definitely offer some benefits, but in those early days you’ll likely end up wasting rolls of film – and once they’ve been used, that’s that! A digital camera will enable you to take and remove as many rubbish shots as you want, and allow you to only save the best ones.
You don’t have to spend money on printing
Printing traditional photos can be quite an expensive process, and you won’t be able to tell how good those classic camera shots look until they’ve been printed anyway! Digital cameras will enable any user to get a really good preview of their shots before they do any printing (if they even need to print anything!)
You can share the photos more easily
In the old days of photography, the only way to share photos to your friends or relatives was to either ask them round in person, or to take the photos with you to their house! In the days of e-mail and Facebook, it’s far easier to simply share the photos across the web. it can also be a good way of obtaining feedback on your earlier work without having to spend any cash.
Costs aren’t what they used to be
In the early days, digital cameras would cost you about the same as a cheap car. Fortunately, the available technology has increased greatly, and it’s now possible to get a genuinely good camera for really very little money overall. Beginner models can be found for next to nothing, especially if you shop second-hand.
There’s a lot of space
This is worth considering if you’re planning to take travel photos. One of the most annoying occurences in the old days was taking your camera out with you, only to discover that you didn’t have as much space on the film as you thought. The result? An eight day holiday that you only have photos of the first two days for! Even a small SD card will provide space for hundreds of shots, so you don’t have to worry about running out!
